ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Damaged teeth can cause a lot of problems. If you’ve ever woken up in discomfort, experienced a dull throbbing toothache or found that you are extremely sensitive to hot and cold foods, chances are you may need a root canal. The nerves and blood vessels in the natural cavity within the centre of a tooth can become infected and if that pulp is not removed in a timely manner then it can cause serious complications.
Root canal therapy will prevent the spread of dental diseases.
Swift treatment can often save the natural tooth.
Combining this treatment with a regular dental check up can help prevent further damage.
How do we do it?
We start by making a cavity within the infected tooth. We then use a special tool to remove the infected pulp from the tooth, taking the time to decontaminate and sterilise the area afterwards. Once the cavity has been cleaned we use a special filling material to close the gap.
You can expect to spend about 2 hours in the dentist’s chair over one or two appointments.
A whopping 90% of Australian adults have experienced tooth decay in their lives!
